Teenage Fanclub announce their new album Nothing Lasts Forever, out September 29, with a video for first single "Foreign Land."
"Foreign Land" also opens the acclaimed rock outfit's eleventh full studio album. That track - and the rest of this beautifully rich and melodic album - is the sound of a season’s end, of the last warm days of the year while nights begin to draw in and thoughts become reflective and more than a little melancholy.
Nothing Lasts Forever’s completion, last year’s “I Left A Light On,” where a spark of hope is kept alight at the end of a relationship.That reflection is everywhere on the record, whether on the autumnal folk rock of “Tired Of Being Alone” that repositions Laurel Canyon to somewhere deep in the heart of the Wye Valley, the William Blake quoting “Self-Sedation” or on the song that preceded
The band that put the album together - songwriters Norman Blake & Raymond McGinley along with Francis Macdonald on drums, Dave McGowan on bass and Euros Childs on keyboards - arrived at the residential studio without a fixed plan. Their confidence and ease with working together meant the record came together incredibly quickly.
Says McGinley, “When we got offered ten days in Rockfield [studio], we weren’t ready in our minds but then we just thought, ‘Fuck it’ and went for it. If you’re sitting around waiting for the stars to align, you can end up never doing anything. We turned up and worked our way through ideas, and came up with some while we were there. The song “Foreign Land” was born in the studio. If we hadn’t gone there at that point through happenstance, that song wouldn’t exist. We like to let things happen. As people, we find a deadline inspiring. We like to put ourselves on the spot and see what happens. We usually get away with it. This record is the cliche of the blank canvas, which thankfully we managed to fill.”
